Payroll Deductions

Before Tax Deductions

This is an itemized listing of all deductions taken from your gross pay on a BEFORE TAX basis. When a deduction is taken on a BEFORE TAX basis, the amount of the deduction is subtracted directly from your gross pay before taxes are calculated, thus reducing the amount of your tax liability.  The amounts of these deductions are listed for the current pay period as well as year to date.
